The City of Houston’s economic development head resigned Tuesday during a meeting of the city council.
Reed, the city’s first full-time economic developer, was hired in January 1999.
Reed was at the meeting to give a report on his department’s recent activities, tendered his resignation and thanked the council for its help.
No plan has been made concerning seeking a replacement, said City Administrator Larry Sutton. The departure was discussed during a closed personnel session, but no decisions were made, he said.
